## What do you do if you have a remainder in decimal division?

When we do division and are left with a remainder, we can continue dividing to get the answer as a decimal. How do we do it? Add a zero to the remainder and a decimal point in the quotient.

### How do you do remainders with short division with decimals?

Short Division with Decimal Remainders

1. Divide each digit individually by looking at the digits from right to left.
2. Write the greatest number of times that the number divides into each digit above the line.
3. Write the remainder in front of the next digit to the right.
4. Look at the next column along and repeat steps 1 to 3.

#### What is the remainder when 327 is divided by 25?

Hence the remainder of 327 when it is divided by 25 is 12.

How do you place the decimal point in division?

When dividing by decimals, move the decimal point in the dividend the same number of places to the right as you move the decimal point in the divisor. Then place the decimal point in the quotient above the decimal point in the dividend.

What is the remainder when 235 is divided by 5?

Expert-verified answer Which means, 235 is divisible by 5. And, we will get zero as the remainder when the dividend is divisible by the divisor.

## How do you divide decimals with a remainder?

Write a zero in the place value column immediately after the decimal point.

• Write the remainder from the ones column in front of the zero to make a 2-digit number.
• Divide this 2-digit number by the number in the question.
• If there is still a remainder,write another zero in the next column and place the remainder in front of it.
• ### How to work out Division with remainders?

Arrange the 4-digit dividend&2-digit divisor numbers for long division method and compare if the the first two digits of dividend 9452 is bigger than the divisor 11.

• Check how many times the divisor can be accommodated in the 94 and write the value as part of quotient.
• Find the difference between 94 and product of 8&11,if any.
• #### How to check division problems with remainders?

(Step 1) multiply the quotient by the divisor and then add the remainder.

• If the result of Step 1 is equal to the dividend,then your answer to the division problem was correct.
• If the result of Step 1 does not equal the dividend,then either you made an error in Step 1 or your answer to the division problem was not correct.
• How do you divide with remainders?

a — Initial number you want to divide,called the dividend;

• n — Number you divide by; it is called the divisor;
• q — Result of division rounded down to the nearest integer; it is called the quotient; and
• r — Remainder of this mathematical operation.
